Well Enough For Fall
Dinner was great. The ends of the ribs were a little black, (forgot the foil,) and the coffee was great, (got it from the local roaster – can you believe it?)
There are a lot of tourists fishing in the park and I only caught one fish but it was about two feet long – I don’t usually measure them. It was just before the meadows at Madison Junction and just before I had to get back. The tourists got a picture but I forgot the camera. Note to self: you can’t blog without a camera. But you can fish without one.
Anyway, I got out of the house for a couple of hours and caught a fish. I had to drive too far though, because there are so many people on the Madison River. The single most frequent license plate that I saw was from Utah, then Montana, then Idaho. Last year I saw a plate from Hawaii – go figure. So it looks like the fishing will be ‘social’ this fall. The Autumn fishing is getting to be just as crowded as the Spring fishing around here.
The sun is very bright this morning and as soon as the domestic engineering is finished I’m going fishing again. I’ll take the camera this time, I promise. Here’s a picture I found on the internet to substitute for the fish picture I didn’t take.
I looked at the morning news and just had to comment on the creeping disappearance of our best wine country due to global warming. My note yesterday mentioned how the Budget Wine Babe was concerned – well so are the writers over at Slate. They have an article about the same thing and you can see it here. It’s more complicated than just the temperature, though. Grapes, just like my trout, respond to the amount of sun.
